In 1939, our founder Oliver A. Smith Jr. had the gift of understanding the intrinsic value of real estate and the vision to realize its future commercial value in the marketplace. Our firm literally reshaped the way commercial real estate is regarded in East Tennessee, bringing Knoxville its first two regional shopping malls, setting the trend for upscale commercial development, building lasting relationships with major tenants and individual property owners, and developing a reputation through sound solutions and fully integrated services for helping define land’s best and highest use. Today, Oliver Smith Realty & Auction Company continues the tradition of being a part of the area’s growth by achieving the greatest end use potential.
With this strong entrepreneurial foundation, we continue to be a leader in commercial real estate and development in the southeast United States. Oliver Smith Realty & Auction’s cross functioning team of devoted individuals provide experience in commercial development, brokerage, commercial auctions and 1031 tax exchanges to all of our clients.
